IVF Clinic East Melbourne

Our East Melbourne fertility clinic is a purpose-built consultation and procedural facility, laboratory and day surgery.

At this location you have access to all fertility treatments and services, including fertility specialist appointments, blood collection for initial screening tests, and all associated procedures, such as egg collection and embryo transfer.

The East Melbourne clinic, located just outside Melbourne's CBD, currently has 20 fertility specialists consulting in private rooms within the Freemasons Medical Centre, next to the fertility clinic. Each specialist works with a small team of nurses and patient liaison administrators to provide continuity of care for each patient.

Our counselling team provides one of the most comprehensive fertility counselling services in the country for both mandatory counselling and support before, during and after treatment.

The East Melbourne Specialist Day Hospital has two operating theatres, a 19-bed recovery unit and a team of specialist nurses, anaesthetists and surgeons.

Our specialised in-house pathology and andrology laboratories carry out tests for fertility diagnostic and treatment purposes including infectious diseases and genetic screening tests, semen analysis and sperm storage. We also offer a surrogacy program and a comprehensive donor program for people wishing to donate or use donated eggs, sperm or embryos.
